VLC rulez in both linux and windoze.

It plays everything you throw at it, is small, clean, nice interface. Comes with free popcorn.

VLC but I use mplayer....

Even though I use mplayer most of the time, VLC just keeps coming through for me on certain occasions. And the fact that it's multi-platform allows me to recommend it to all of my friends/co-workers who haven't made the switch to Linux yet.

VLC is my favourite. It just works, even if I don't have all of the right codecs.

Happy GNU Year!

Mplayer is the best, but Xine is a tough rival. =)

Mplayer/gmplayer is my favourite by a narrow margin, then Xine, closely followed by VLC. I can do things and play files in mplayer that cause xine and VLC to barf. Xine is tops for playing DVD's ,though.
